WASHINGTON, May 18—</P)—
An idea that a senatorial appeal
to “beat Japan first” may have
been suggested during confer-
ences with United States military
leaders was expressed on capi-
tal hil today in the wake of a
three-hour senate row' over di-
verting American military might
to the Pacific.
Senator Chandler (D-Ky), who
started the wrangle with warn-
ings that if Germany is beaten
first the United States may count
on little or no help from Britain
or Russia to whip the Nipponese,
acknowledged himself that he
“encouraged to make the speech.”
The Kentuckian declined to say
fr< u what source the encourage-
ment came but he expressed be-
lief that a decision may be forth-
coming soon from the Roosevelt-
Churchill war conferences point-
ing to a powerful American of-
fensive against Japan.
The president was disclosed
last night to have told Premier
Stalin of Russia that it is “rea-
sonable to expect further success-
es on both the eastern and west-
ern fronts," and to have express-
ed a hope to Generalissimo Chiang
Kai-Shek that Allied forces will
take the initiative against Japan
in asia “in the near future.”
Those developments followed a
navy report of new American
! submarine successes in the Pa-
| cifie, and indications that the At-
I tu island phase of the battle to-
ward driving the Japanese out of
the Aleutians may be proceeding
toward a sw’ift cleanup.
President Roosevelt’s messages
to Stalin and Chiang Kai-Shek
were in response to congratula-
tions sent by them on the vic-
tory in North Africa. The navy
told of the destruction of six
Japanese ships, including a de-
: si rover, by American subs in the
Pacific, and while the only of-
! final comment on the Attu bat-
' tie was that it is “continuing,”
it was said authoritatively that
I “one day of clear weather is all
In the senate, Chandler said
his previous appeal for a full as-
sault in the Pacific had been
made “on my own hook,” and
"I wouldn’t have done it again
but I was encouraged to make
I the speech and I know now our
boys want it that way."
Senatorial reaction noted par-
ticularly the timing with some
observers speculating on the pos-
sibility that the request to knock
Japan out of the war first was
inspired by United States mili-

M. I. EDWARDS, Prop.
By DEWITT MACKENZIE
The prediction by iqmy officers
in Washington that Japanese-held
Kiska island is likely to be the
next objective of our forces in
the Aleutians—after Attu—has
brought a request that 1 deal
again with this obscure sector of
our global war.
Because they’re an out-of-the-
way spot, the Aleutians seem a
long way off.
Still, the Aleutians are import-
ant, if mysterious. Were the Japs
allowed to retain their hold on
these westernmost islands of the
group, the day might come when
America would have to pay hea-
vily for it.
The Japanese last June occu-
pied Attu—the island for which
our invading force is now report-
ed to be fighting fiercely—and
Kiska, which lies some 180 miles
to the southeast. These little vol-
canic knobs are on the western
end of the Aleutians, which
sweep out from the Alaskan pe-
ninsula in a curve like Hailey’s
comet, fifteen hundred miles long.
Most of the Aleutians are of
small use to man or beast. They
don’t even grow trees, but con-
fine their activities to producing
some of the filthiest weather the
world knows. Foes exist the vear
around; gales constantly lash
them: it rains 250 days in the
However, part of the islands
are susceptible to development as
submarine and air bases. The
most important, of course, is Un-
alaska next to the Alaskian penin-
sula. That’s where our Dutch
Harbor is, and the island has vi-
tal defenses for the protection of
the approaches to that part of the
The islands held by the Japs
are on the other end of this tail
of islands. Kiska is the best of
the lot, for this has spaces which
can be developed as air-fields. At-
tu also could be used for emerg-
ency airplane landings after a lot
of work in preparing the ground.
The Japanese objective in oc-
cupying these islands probably
was mainly defensive. Attu and
Kiska are in the path of shipping
and airplanes, and if developed
as bases could be used to hamper
any operations we might under-
take against Japanese territory
from Alaska, or try to stymie our
sea and air communications with
These defensive bases also
might be used against the Alas-
kan mainland or even northwest-
ern United States if the Japs were
permitted to develop sufficient
strength. Certainly it’s a potential
menace which couldn’t be over-
One would assume that when
we have reclaimed these west-
ernmost islands we will develop
them as bases. They would be
valuable in defense, and they
would be fine stepping stones
both for our operations against
the Japs and for communications
with Russia. Attu, by the way, is
only 700 odd miles from the im-
portant Jap base of Paramushiru,
just south of Kamchatka.
Great Northwest Yields Lumber for Bombers

Be Directed By
WASHINGTON, May 18—t/T*)-
The Allied invasion of Europe ;
may be directed—not by a single j
supreme commander—but by sev- j
oral commanders, each having his j
own sphere of operations.
Speculation over the appoint-
ment of an Allied commander, au-
thorities here pointed out today,
generally presupposes one great
drive, whereas the strategy actu-
ally to be followed may turn out
to be a multiple attack.
Presumably, President Roose-
velt and Prime Minister Churchill
have by now set the course of in-
vasion, and it is more than like-
ly that they have agreed on a
commander—or commanders. As-
suming a single all-out smash, the
names figuring most prominently
in speculation are those of three
full generals, one British and two
American—Sir Harold R. L. G.
Alexander, Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er and George C. Marshall.
If. however, a multiple invasion
is the plan. Marshall’s name
drops out of most of the guessing
here. It is regarded as unlikely
that he would give up his present
post as chief of staff to take over
a task force doing only a part of
In the opinion of observers,
there would be no single com-
mander over the whole battle for
Europe if two or more thrust®
were started. The overall com-
mand probably would continue to
be, as it is now, a joint staff job,
headed up by the president and
the prime minister.

HOT SPRINGS. Vn.. Mav 18—
(/P)—It could happen here;
Any one of the approximately
160 delegates to the international
food conference could arise and
say when the first of the two
weeks’ sessions starts tonight:
“The malnutrition which exists
in all countries is at one a chal-
lenge and an opportunity: A chal-
lenge to men’s consciences and
an opportunity to eradicate a
social evil by methods which will
increase economic prosperity.”
But those words already have
been written, in a report by a
special committee of the League
of Nations which in 1937 publish-
ed the results of its investigation
into world food needs.
In the intervening six years un-
til now, nothing of world-wide
nature has been done to grapple
with the age-old problem of pro-
viding the earth’s millions of hu-
man beings with enough food to
keep them from being underfed
or poorly fed.
In the same six years, war has
intensified the problem, with mil-
lions more starving in countries
occupied by the Axis.
But some more years may in-
tervene before the purpose of the
conference called here by Presi-
dent Roosevelt can be carried out
The best immediate results
some observers expect from the
conference are these:
